Matthew Quek PROFILE As a trained teacher with a Masters in Educational Research, I have accumulated more than ten years’ experience in teaching History and Humanities to students preparing for N, O and A Levels, as well as the International Baccalaureate diploma. I have detailed well-tested methodologies in equipping students with writing techniques as well as forming clear and succinct thesis statements in their written work. I believe that the enclosed student evaluations and testimonials by m ex-students attest to the effectiveness of my pedagogy. EXPERIENCE History teacher, St Joseph Institution (Independent) — 2015 - 2016 I was the Subject Coordinator for the History Integrated Programme (IP). I was also the official liaison between the Senior School History Section and the Secondary Section. In addition, I was one of the teachers in charge of the School’s Drama Club that won a distinction for the Singapore Youth Festival 2015. Moreover, I was a regular singer and performer for school events as well as for Staff events, especially the farewell dinner for our then principal, Dr Koh Thiam Seng. History teacher, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) — 2010 - 2014 I trained students in History for their International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma, was the subject coordinator for the Secondary 4 and Secondary 3 students in the Integrated Programme (IP).

Finally, I was the teacher in charge of the renowned college choir, which won the Gold award with honours in the Singapore Youth Festival in 2007. I also was appointed to perform for many official school, alumni and student events. Teacher, ZhongHua Secondary School — 2002 - 2005 I taught History and Social Studies to students of all levels in the Normal Academic, Express and Special streams, and was also the form teacher of the Normal Academic classes every year. I was appointed as the History department’s sole representative in collaborating with NIE (National Institute of Education) to devise new pedagogical approaches in Singapore’s educational system.
